Winery Details

    The Bream Creek vineyard was planted in 1974 by Fred Peacock. One of the first commercial vineyards established in the Apple Isle state, it has long been considered one of the very best sites in Eastern Tasmania. Fred's premium cool-climate wines are concentrated and long, thanks to the mature vines and low yields. 

Press Review

    Bream Creek Cuvée Traditionelle 2011

    Producer Hall of Honour - Tyson Stelzer's Australian Sparkling Report 2018

    Runner Up Sparkling Wines of the Year Under $50

    The cool, wet 2011 season has infused tension and endurance in Tasmanian sparkling, producing a standout cuvée for Bream Creek. The red cherry, red apple and strawberry fruit of pinot noir take the lead, backed by the citrus crunch of chardonnay. A majority of fermentation in old oak barrels has been well-handled, upholding the purity and focus of the fruit and the season, while heightening spice and complexity. It holds with impressive line and length, concluding with balanced dosage.

    Bream Creek Cuvée Traditionelle 2011

    A traditional-method blend of pinot noir and chardonnay that spent over 4 years on lees, the cork hitting the roof a split-second after the cage was removed. Follows in the fruit footsteps of the gold medal-winning ’10. Has the power and drive that is the mark of Tasmanian sparkling, the only question being the depth and extent of the stone fruit, apple and wild strawberry. Needs more time.
